"OMG, You Guys!"
Conant High School Presents
Legally Blonde The Musical
Based on the hit movie, James B. Conant High School presents…Legally Blonde The Musical. It's the story of California sorority girl, Elle Woods who doesn't take "no" for an answer and finds that being true to yourself never goes out of style. An all-singing, all-dancing, feel good musical comedy, Legally Blonde is "one Elle of a show!"
Under the Direction of Josh Nilsson, more than 125 students and faculty have collaborated over a four-month period to create the 2013 Conant musical. Opening night is Friday, February 22 at Conant High School's Plate Auditorium. Tickets are only $8 and available online at: www.ShowTix4U.com.
The Story. When sorority girl Elle Woods is dumped by her boyfriend for someone "serious," she puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has ever gone before:
Harvard Law School. Along the way, Elle meets new friends Emmett, a fellow law student, and Paulette, a beautician, while her Delta Nu sisters help her discover the real power of the law.
